N39° 33′ 47 W2° 20′ 43 off the coast of Palma was the central location for commercial photographer Tim Wallace as he worked with a team to complete a commercial shoot of the luxury yacht ‘Genevieve’ for our yacht charter client based in New York. The work was this month published in ‘Super Yacht Owner’ magazine.
In the new build sector of the super yacht market, there will always be big personalities, visionaries setting out to push the envelope and make a dramatic statement. Photographer Tim Wallace was recently asked to work with a global company who is the top savvy brand behind this market in a new venture to shoot there latest offering ‘Genevieve’ with his strong dramatic style of photography capture.
The company approached Commercial Photographer Tim Wallace with a desire to have their product shot in Tim’s style using both technical still, medium format high end quality and most importantly ‘passion’. Initial the interior work had already been completed and Tim along with a crew of support staff including staff from Hasselblad met with the boat in Palma a few weeks ago to board equipment and sail to the shoot location off Dragonera Island.
Tim – “Its was an exciting project and one that in truth has been on the table being discussed through their New York office now for nearly a year. I’m no stranger to shooting prestige modes of transport and I guess I’m best known for my work in the car industry but this project really offers massive scope to ‘get dramatic’ and to some degree I feel like we have a blank canvas to fill which was certainly a challenge but one that both myself and the team were very devoted to. I’ll worked closely with Hasselblad and the support crew to shoot this stunning ship for a marketing campaign that will hopefully not only raise the brand for our client but also offer a new vision for what it possible in the world of yacht and boat photography. I’m hoping that I have managed to inject some real passion into the project with photography that has not been seen before. I think some of the team were a little anxious of my plans to hang out of helicopters at dawn but after numerous meetings to discuss equipment needs and logistics we saw a very busy but productive 2 days shooting. Trying to plan out lighting and requirements for setups was a challenge and we had 8 lights on the boat and others in support boats to each side while I shot quite literally out of a Helicopter, which is fun to say the least.
Has it been easy, well in truth the logistics of a shoot like this never are, the amount of equipment required, insurance, the sheer fact that your dealing with a ship that costs out at £1m per metre not to mention the hire and set up for 2 helicopters and multiple RIB fast boats for lighting etc. It’s been a great project and I’m looking forward to doing further work in the yacht sector in the future.

In the world of photography there are few names that more respected and synonymous with photographic quality more than that of Hasselblad and their monthly publication ‘Victor’. In this months November edition we are delighted to announce that photographer Tim Wallace has received the Hasselblad Photographer of the Month Award and has again been featured with his work in the infamous Victor publication based in Germany.
The publication has a truly Worldwide readership including art directors and agencies and is the central showcase for what is perceived to be the best work currently being created within the industry. It is rare for a photographer to be chosen to be featured from the thousands of submissions that are made each month, and back in April of 2010 Tim was awarded a 16 page feature to showcase his work, one of the largest to ever be given. This additional award from HOC has meant that he is again featured in the November edition which sets somewhat of a record for being featured not only twice but also in the same year. The winning piece of work was shot as part of a project that Tim worked on recently entitled ‘Little Miss Innocent’, a retro modern look at the fashion industry of the 50′s and the use of fur at this time and received the most votes globally from the public to pick up the prestigious award.
Tim- “I’m delighted and somewhat humbled to receive this award especially as it was made for a subject base that is not strictly within my specialist field. ‘Little Miss Innocent’ was a project that I worked on recently to shoot a modern retro style group of images to show the use of fur within the fashion industry in the 50′s period. I wanted the project to have a modern twist and yet maintain quite classic feel in some ways, I feel it has a good mix of both and while being controversial it has really been well received which is always great to see. Victor, and having work published, is one of those career milestone moments I guess and I fully appreciate that many photographers never see their work appear in Victor so to have so twice is a real honour and I can honestly say that I am both thankful and lucky to work with some amazing people.”
